This was fairly quick and easy to make using the eclips2 and eCal3 software. And best of all, gluten free, sugar-free, and 0 carbs!
Donut Fun (The Cutting Cafe)
Sizzix eclips2 and eCal software
DIY Audio Card EZ Sound Module (Invite By Voice)
Happy Birthday.mp3 ringtone (Zedge.com)
Cardstock (white, pink, kraft brown)
Transparency for box window
Distress Ink and blender tool and pads
Adhesive (glue and scor tape)
- The card base is a sheet measuring 8.5 x 16.5. Score at 5.50, and 11 inches. You will have 3 sections to the card.
- Create your sentiment for the inside of the card before adding the sound card to the center portion of the card base. This will make it so much easier. Add any other details to the card inside as desired. (I've left the sentiment off for personal reasons)
- I made the card front using basic shapes to create a "box front" with a layered banner. This card front is just slightly smaller than the card front 8.25 x 5.25. The donuts are reduced to 80% and all pieces are cut using the eclips2.
- Ink the edges of the donut pieces. Adhere the 'frosting" to the base and add a few sprinkles using some snowy glitter*. Let dry.
- Prepare the box top. Adhere the transparency to the back of the box top and add the banner to the front. Set aside.
- Record the sound module according to manufacturer's directions. It's really so easy. For this particular card, I chose a free ringtone from Zedge.com Replace the "block" until you have the sound module installed in your card.
- Assemble the card front and adhere. Place the donuts on the card base front, add the "box" top. I used scor tape to adhere the box front. You could use a foam tape if you wanted a little more height to the project.
- Now place your sound module in the card. Make sure that the area with the small triangular cuts is on the fold as it provides the "trigger" to start and stop the play of the module. Apply some score tape to the top and bottom edges of the card base. Remove the release tape and the shield from the module (it may start playing). Fold the right third of the card over to the center, lining up the edges and secure to the tape. Fold the top over to "close" the card.
Happy Crafting vibes to you! Hoping you're planning some time in your crafting space this coming week!
